Edwin & Tilda Elope

My dd and her finance eloped a couple of weeks ago. Although I was sad I couldn't be at the wedding, I am happy for them. They are coming over tomorrow so I will give them some gifts and this card. 
Kaitey carried a bouquet with red, yellow and bluish/purple flowers so I tried to use that color scheme. The yellow flowers were off-white but I colored them with copics. The red roses were already red. I cut out the hearts with a nestabilities and then made the white dots with a white pen. The swirls are done with a memory box die. Tilda's dress is covered with frosted lace stickles. At first I was just going to do the lace at the neckline, then some highlights on the dress and pretty soon I went for the whole dress. I tied the flowers with the iridescent cording and the bow at the bottom. Added some mini dew drops all around. 
Thanks for visiting. I really appreciate your comments.
